Cool. :-)

Yeah, I'm also looking forward to version control. :-)  Would make
comments such as the following much swifter. ;-)

Doing that right now:
 * In "The values of its mode attribute are as they would be in a
photo editing program like Adobe Photoshop�.", there seems to have
been an issue with the encoding of the HTML document -- you'd probably
meant the "(R)" character.
* The table of contents and footnote links still point to the previous
location (for example,
and seems like the redirect isn't taking the link hash into
consideration (so you just end up in
"http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/IG/resources/svgprimer.html"). Simply
removing all occurrences of "StateOfArt-Dailey.html" should fix it
(only the hash will then be taken into consideration).

I have a lot more comments, mostly regarding minor stuff such as typos
and minor incoherences. I'd defer those for whenever the book is
accessible through version control, in order to spare everyone from
the overhead of tracing a particular sentence in order to fix a typo.

Hope this helps,
